Environmental Controls on Alternating Aragonite-calcite Laminations in Notch-speleothems from Cayman Brac, Cayman Islands, British West IndiesDownload
Speleothems that grow in semi-exposed surface environments, such as wave-cut notches, are not well understood despite their widespread distribution. The +6.4 m-high wave-cut notch on Cayman Brac, that formed ~ 125 ka ago, is decorated with stalactites, stalagmites, and columns that grew between...
Centennial, millennial and multi-millennial scale climate cycles have been observed in paleoclimate proxies distributed globally. Examples of these cyclical climate cycles include oscillations with periods of ~2.3, ~1.5, ~1, and ≤0.5 thousand years (kyr) in the Quaternary. In the Neogene, longer...
Paelomagnetic and petromagnetic studies of Chinese Cenozoic sediments: Paleoclimatic, tectonic, and evolutionary implicationsDownload
The anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS) was investigated in three Chinese Loess Plateau sedimentary sections along a W–E transect. Previously published models assumed that winter monsoons were responsible for the magnetic fabric formation of loess sequences. In our new interpretation, the...
Study of the Chinese loess and Siberian flood basalts: new global scale insights to the paleoclimate and geomagnetic field changesDownload
Paleomagnetism, in conjunction with other earth science methods, studies the behavior of the Earth's magnetic field, the drift of tectonic plate, climate and environmental changes. This thesis implements different applications of paleomagnetism to develop a technique to evaluate age for the...
Three sedimentary drilling cores from Lake Baikal were used to build a new composite magnetic susceptibility record for the Brunhes and upper Matuyama chrons. The developed age model, based on the constructing of the composite susceptibility signal and orbital tuning, shows a substantial...
